Moving On

There comes a time in your life when you have to let some things go.

Things that you love.

Things that you have worked hard for.

Things that you feel deeply passionate about.

Things that have given you hope, friends, love and many wonderful experiences.

Things that have shaped your life for a long and rewarding time.

This is such a time.

After a long and gut-wrenching process of planning the next steps of my life, my online presence and with that, my future, my heart and mind led me to the conclusion that I had to move on from certain projects and focus on one single mission:

empowering you to find your purpose, self- and body-love and, what is most important, your self-worth.

In the past year, I’ve juggled too many projects, too many messages and too many commitments. I had spread myself too thin and had lost my mental and physical balance.

The pressure to write for two completely independent websites, keep four different podcasts alive and try to make a living was taking its toll on my health and state of mind. At the same time, the quality of my work was not what I wanted it to be and so I was doing both a disservice to you, my devoted readers and podcast listeners, and myself.

Over time, it became evident that I needed to eliminate certain things and create a sharp focus on one single theme. This is what I did with the rebranding of

During this process of rebranding, I decided to not continue writing for this website, nor will I produce any new episodes of the Fighting Anorexia podcast after episode 60. 

I know that many of you will be upset and so am I, but I want you to know that I did not take this decision lightly. 

I will forever cherish this website and it will not be taken down. This blog has saved me more often than I can tell. It has kept me sane, gave me a purpose and a reason to keep fighting.

The podcast has helped me just as much as it has helped you and I will most certainly continue to draw from the strategies I talked about for a long time to come.

I am working on a new podcast and weekly videos about self-empowerment and I know that you will benefit from the episodes since the finding of your true self and the developing of self-love is such an integral part of fighting anorexia.

This is why I am hoping you’ll move on with me to aMINDmedia and the new podcast and that together we can empower ourselves beyond the eating disorder that we have been or are still fighting.

I love each and every single one of you and I cannot even begin to put into words how much your support has meant to me over the last year. You will forever hold a very special place in my heart.

I’ll never forget what you have done for me.

Thank you from the entire of my heart and I hope to see you over at aMINDmedia.

Thank you dear Anne-Sophie!

Your site was one of the key factors of me getting out of anorexia. Your writings and podcasts helped me so much!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am out now. So are you. It is sad that one adventure ends, yet life is about change. Healing from AN is, to me, about accepting change, not trying to control life. Life cannot be controlled and it will never stop evolving.

I shall be there to read you as I have for a long time now… along your new endeavor. You are doing great, and I hope to have more time to comment again, like I used to.

Hi Susa,

you have no idea how much your words mean to me. I still have a hard time to believe that I played a tiny role (because let’s be honest: YOU did the main and most difficult part) in your recovery.

Oh, how right you are: life cannot be controlled and we have to try to be as relaxed about all the changes and challenges that come along the way. Yet with anorexia we believe we can control at least part of it, without realizing that after only a short amount of time, anorexia controls us.

I’m so happy that you’ll be joining me in my new endeavors as I am joining you in yours. xoxo
